Evan Short joined the UCSB baseball staff as director of analytics in August 2017 after two seasons as a student intern.
In his current role, he will use programs such as Right View Pro to obtain, organize, and analyze data. He will be responsible for identifying new technologies and information-intake methods to foster data-driven growth for the program in order to supplement player evaluation and development.
As a student, Short was responsible for recording and monitoring in-game footage, providing statistical analysis on UCSB players and opponents, and producing consumable packages to the coaching staff.
In his first year with the Gauchos, Short helped to identify prospects for assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Eddie Cornejo, managed a prospect database, and provided support for Cornejo during recruiting trips.
Short graduated from UCSB in spring 2017 with degrees in statistics and sociology. He currently resides in Goleta, Calif.
